    My '69 Camaro has had one, and only one, engine in it since 1978 when we bought it. The same engine won multiple NHRA National Events, set multiple NHRA Stock class records, and won the NHRA National Championship as well.

    It's been freshened several times, although only once since I've been driving it on the street, but it's the same engine. It's not been rebuilt in 20 years now, but it has also sat a lot. Hopefully will be driving it with the top down and banging gears this summer though.
    That's what I'm talking about! My dad's motor got flogged on a regular basis for many years street racing, bracket racing, I even learned to race with it, and now time to give its final years in a street rod! I love the fact that yours is similar to ours but we never won any national events with it, but it sure got raced like it LOL!
